My Creative Journey

Calgary-based artist, Arnie or "Arnz" Mabalay is on a mission of creating magic onto your beautiful faces using colorful face paints.

Art has been ingrained in Arnie's veins even at a young age as her childhood days were filled with portraits and watercolors. This passion took a back seat for years, and in 2018 at a church event, Arnie found herself as an artist once again. As a face painter, she saw and experienced the joy brought by the happiness that lit up in everyone's faces as she transformed them into a work of art. 

Arnie's evolution as an artist continues to grow as she aims to serve her clientele with a dash of magic, joy, and creativity.

She's a known watercolorist and a positive force in the art community. Adored by enthusiasts, customers, and brands alike. Please visit her watercolor works on her Instagram account @arnie_artsy

Her natural inclination to safety and care for her clients led her to ensure strict health guidelines are followed and top-quality professional, cosmetic grade water-activated material is used.

Arnie is an artist with a heart to serve. Driven by a passion to live life in vivid colors while adding a hint of happiness and splash of glitter one face at a time.
